Thanks hun i think i will take him i guess its better i take him now so if he freaks out its no big deal coz its only a check up.I think when they go to school they go twice a year so i will take him to let him get used to it.

I was told to take Joseph to my next appointment after his forst tooth came through- helps get them used to going, so he has been going since about 8mths. I would take your LO- phone dentist and let them know and they will get a card etc ready for him

we tried to get lottie into our dentist with DF when her teeth started appearing they told DF to bring her when he has appointments but they wont see her til shes 5yrs old - then we saw a different dentist who tried to look last yr but she screamed the place down!

I've never taken mine to the dentist yet as my dentist has a full list, but now that Summer has started school she will get hers checked there.
